I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronics and Information in Politecnico di Milano, Italy and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Davis.

Short bio

Since late 2000, I have been a member of the Broadband Optical Networks, Security & Advanced Internet Lab (Bonsai Group) in Politecnico di Milano. I received a Laurea (M.Sc.) degree in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in October 2001, discussing a thesis developed at the CoreCom Network Laboratory (now Policom) under the supervision of Prof. Achille Pattavina. In 2002, I was a research associate in Corecom, and I worked in collaboration with PSTS (Pirelly Submarine Telecom Systems) and TILAB (Telecom Italia Labs).I started my PhD in March 2003: from May to December 2004 I visited the Networks Lab of Prof. Biswanath Mukherjee in U.C.Davis, and from November 2005 to February 2006 I was at the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) in Barcellona, working in the optical networking group headed by Dr. Raül Muñoz. I received a Ph.D. in Information Engineering in May 2006. From 2007 to 2009, I was a post-doc researcher in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Davis. In January 2010, I started my career as a faculty in Politecnico di Milano.
